Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

suse 9.1 has no issues seeing and having full read write premissions to my dad's win2000 PC. i didn't even do any configureation to my linux box. granted when i want to see the files i am prompted with a login screen.
i use it to check for spyware or other potential problems my brother may be causeing.
it works rather well. i belive most distributions have it.
Distribution: Slackware (are there are distros??? lol ;D)
Sharing MS-Win Directories
I recently setup a samba server at my place of business to act as a file server. A great resource for learning about the server would be a book called using samba. The book is available for free right off of samba's website. In case you have trouble finding it, here is the URL: http://us4.samba.org/samba/docs/using_samba/toc.html
Again, the book was a great help to me when trying to share MS-WIN files to linux or a Linux FS to MS-Windows
